You can count Hillary Clinton among those who don’t think Rudy Giuliani has provided much evidence that he should be involved in U.S. foreign policy.
Clinton’s comments came as part of appearance Monday alongside Chelsea Clinton on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” while discussing the news earlier in the day that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was listening in on the Ukraine call that has been at the center of a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump. Colbert asked her about Giuliani, the former New York City mayor now serving as Trump’s personal lawyer, in light of news that Trump told the president of Ukraine to speak to Giuliani.
“As secretary of state, how would you feel if the president was sending Rudy Giuliani out to actually handle foreign policy?” Colbert asked.
“Yeah, that would be a big problem,” Clinton responded. “Presidents often use, as do secretaries of states, they might use an envoy or a special adviser to deliver a message. But again, it is supposed to be carefully thought through. And from what we’ve seen on television, carefully thinking through is not one of Rudy’s strong points.” Zing!
